Get in line for designer wedding dress discounts at the Phillipa Lepley sample sale, kicking off on Saturday January 9 at her boutique in Fulham, London. The end of the season is a perfect time to find a couture dress at a fraction of the usual price, helping to keep tight budgets on track without losing out on your heart's desire. Famed for her hidden corsetry, Phillipa Lepley uses the finest fabrics sourced from around the world - think Italian satin and the finest French lace - plus bespoke embellishments to make each dress unique. If your mum will insist on coming along, keep her occupied with the boutique's range of mother-of-the-bride gowns which are also included in the sale, alongside those important outfit-completing accessories.
